Like most places, if there's a champion for a project or idea, it gets a lot more attention.

Somebody there really likes us and brings us up at staff meetings :ph34r: (...is my bet.)

What do you see when you turn out the light? I can't tell you but I know that it's mine.

Yup, Digital nightfall I believe built one or more of the levels in Death of the Outsider. Some of the guards and characters have the names of a few of the ttlg forum members.

Oh!

 

It's why they're so adorable (I love the Mine! It's one of the best levels ever seen IHMO - so much fitting atmosphere! A pure visual and exploration delight!)

Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

I wonder how long it'll be before the game companies start tracking down the best authors & offering jobs, if it hasn't happened already

 

 

Dram.

Nice article, but another misquoting of TDM's name in the title, no mention of stellar missions like Requiem, and the rather bizarre insinuation that you have to download the tutorial mission. We need to get someone in the comments there, ASAP, and do damage control. :D The base pack, at the very least, has the tutorial and those two story missions. No downloads needed. Couldn't the author get at least that right ?

Maybe he started downloading missions without checking for anything first and after that it's basically impossible to recognize the missions that came as a default. Again I recommend to rename them to something more obvious to make them appear at the top of the list!

DSO gaming has revised our build version to 2.4 rather than 2.06. I guess that's fair since it's a pretty big change in tech:

Every other site lists it as 2.06, so to be fair why can't they?

LOL I was joking about their incorrect version number.

 

They probably just guessed based on the last build they saw in google.

Haven't had a chance to watch this one yet:

 

https://linuxgamecast.com/tag/tdm-2-06/

Just had a quick look through it, they talk about TDM at 39:05 but it’s quite brief.

      I did it! I finally did it! After 48 hours of frustration and confusion, I managed to finally sort out how to attach equipment to NPC:s properly, and write down coherent instructions on how to do it, both in my manual, and in this forum.
      I can finally rest. I can finally eat breakfast.

      Spent most of the day learning and writing about AI navigation. It's stuff I already know, but the magic about writing something down as clearly formulated as possible, is that you then see things that much more clearly. You also find what's unclear to you, and then you figure out exactly how things work. I was hoping to get through it all within just a day, but it looks like this will take tomorrow as well, at this rate. There's also plenty of other nonsense I have to get through as well. Everything's a chore.

      I want to be a fish, but I'm not a fish. My mom wants to be a fish too, and so she's killing herself eating plankton and sh***ng blood, and tells me to stop nagging her about taking her medication. I spent several hours today, just lying in bed, having anxiety over just existing, and not being a fish. You fish, you don't know how lucky you are. You can eat all the plankton you want. I tried eating plankton again yesterday, and I just got sick. I hate being a shark.

      I just gave myself vertigo. A pleasant kind of vertigo, like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. I'll explain:
      Yesterday I saw to my dismay, that I had made my entire map two - two - units too short on every level - that every set01 piece was sticking 2 units into the ceiling. That's basically 402 brushes that needs to be realigned (minus the ground floor brushes).
      I knew enough about selections to do all of that in a very tense five minutes, and it compiled without leaks. (Thank you so much, Dark Radiant devs, for making an editor with such care for precision that you can align hundreds of brushes perfectly at once (which is not something I can say for Valve's Hammer editor, which has some serious issues on that front, which actually made me just quit it in disgust).) However, the result is that the entire level has now been stretched a barely noticable 2 units, and it will take some getting used to psychologically.

      My workflow is basically running from a chain of disasters, eventually trying to seek shelter in former disasters. It's not ideal - it's just my life.
      When I abandoned my first map, it was out of a typical mental breakdown, and so I returned to find a skybox void where the kitchen door should have been (due to a misplaced visportal) and two overlapping brushes Z-fighting on the kitchen floor.
      I've now cleaned up the last bit of mess, by cleanly separating every floor into its own layer. Now I can finally work on each floor in peace.
      ...not that I really needed to. Once you get skilled enough, the orthographic messes, well, I'll let this video speak for itself:
